Rotor Riot – YouTube’s FPV Lifestyle Show

Rotor Riot – YouTube’s FPV Lifestyle Show

In January 2016, an action-packed web show appeared on YouTube aimed specifically at the burgeoning first person- view (FPV) multirotor community. But unlike earlier attempts, this one eschewed technical language, avoided instructional videos, and circumnavigated hobbyist clichés, opting instead for something a lot more exciting. Taking cues from snowboarding and skating videos, it portrayed the […]

Prescription lenses for your FPV goggles

RHO-Lens Today’s FPV goggles offer amazing resolution for a truly immersive flying experience. Unfortunately, fliers with less-than-perfect distance vision may not get the most out of these outstanding headsets.

Drone Law Updates

Drone Law Updates

FAA Registration Required! Congress has just finalized legislation that will reverse the earlier court ruling in the John Taylor case that restores the FAA’s UAS registration requirement, and on December 12, 2017, President Trump signed the legislation into law. This legislation—the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018— requires pilots of drones and RC aircraft to register with the FAA at registermyuas.faa.gov and pay a $5 fee. If you already registered, you will not have to […]
Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia
f2.2—1/13s—ISO 200
My mission here was to capture the beautiful contrasting colors and textures of the lily pads, water, and wharf. Hence, I decided to elevate the drone to about 45 to 60 feet as it allowed me encapsulate every part of the scene I wanted to. It also helped me crop out other potential distractions, such as grassy banks, that could have crept into the scene. Cropping out the grassy banks also added a dark sense of mystery. I also tilted the frame by positioning the wharf at 45 degrees just to break the overall horizontality of the composition.

The Art of a Drone Selfie

Generally speaking, I always thought of selfies as being harmless fun. However, the idea of people becoming obsessed with the manufacturing of their own self-portraits came across as somewhat narcissistic. Because of that I always steered away from taking pictures of myself, and never in a million years would I have imagined writing a feature […]

Everything that grows and is harvested in agriculture is dependent on pollination. Bats, birds, bees, and other flying insects are the main pollinators that we depend on to pollinate our crops. According to a recent United Nations report, about 75 percent of the world’s crops, including apples, oranges, cherries, carrots, and even coffee, depend at […]

What Programing Features are Helpful for Flying Drones?

What Programing Features are Helpful for Flying Drones?

To begin with, dual rates are helpful as they affect the speed at which your model  changes roll, pitch, or yaw orientation for a given stick input. There are no hard and fast rules for dual rates as they are dependent on your own preferences. For drone racing, I like to have a lower rate […]
